Musicman OBIT: Danny Burns (2002) (7) RE: OBIT: Danny Burns 10 May 02

hi y'all...

Yes.. Danny Burns.. or the Wolfhounds in the '70's and recently the Ballad BAnd in Vancouver passed away monday evening after collapsing due to an anurism......

I knew Danny and played with the Ballad band on and off for about 3 years..... He was a most generous man, wonderful sense of humour and an outstanding musician. He loved his Guiness and his Irish Whiskey. Everyone here who knew him.. even for a short while, were touched by his presence. It was always a treat playing with him in the Ballad Band because you never knew what was going to happen next... Set list???? what's a set list?? He would introduce a singer without telling the singer what they were singing!!... makes for a bit of a scramble , but hey .. we had a lot of fun playing together.... He had some real groaners for jokes... but they always brought a smile...... He was a great 'front man' in the band and would always be talking to the audience......

He had a way of bringing out the best in people around him.....

he will be sorely missed.

Paul Evenden, Musicman
